Technote (troubleshooting)


Active Directory Agent reports "PdhValidatePath failed for [\Database(lsass)\Cache % Hit] c0000bb9" error message in log files.

These error are reported in a log files because this performance counter is not present on windows 2008 R2 servers.

Resolving the problem

This would not affect the monitoring of AD server as Windows 2008 R2 uses a different performance counter [Database\Database Cache % Hit] to collect this data.

For example as in the log:

(50235319.0647-1C48:k3zpdh.cpp,721,"AddCounters") Adding (13)[Database\Database Cache % Hit]
